Published Jun 30, 2014Common just detailed his impending album Nobody Smiling, and now he's rolled out the track "Speak My Piece."
The song features a metallically clanging beat and some breaks with chopped-up samples. Beyond that, Common's rhymes are up front and centre as he gives a shout-out for his hometown of Chicago. He ultimately takes a backseat and lets the beat play out for the last half of the track.
Nobody Smiling will be out on July 22 through Def Jam.
